I think you are confused as to what exactly makes web browsers sometimes run faster and use less memory.

For a simple example, the Gnome calculator weights 8.4 MB, whereas merely opening a new tab in Firefox without doing anything in it costs 11 MB. With this in mind, I strongly doubt that you can make a calculator web app which weights less than the Gnome one.

Same with performance, it really depends on if you are dealing with crappy coders and/or use an OS that has a poor file management performance. Most of my basic apps show up in about a tenth of a second, which is already a lot but far from being unacceptable.
